The United Methodist Economic Ministry has its roots in the Sugarloaf Protestant Ministry,
the Evangelical United Brethren Churches in Kingfield and Salem, and Mission at the Eastward.
In 1969 the first building was moved to Salem and set up as a thrift shop.
Those facilities have grown to include a food cupboard, office space and workgroup quarters.
In over thirty years its mission has remained the same, "to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, and house the poor."
